WATCH: Jean Carroll on her 33 years with the YWCA

Apr 8, 2018

“Meeting a woman where she is, addressing her immediate needs, and building on her strengths” - according to Rochester’s Jean Carroll, that’s what builds confidence and puts a woman on a path towards a better future. The President and CEO of the YWCA of Rochester and Monroe County has been tackling that work for more than 30 years. Work that, for the most part, will come to an end later this month. Carroll is stepping down from her post for personal obligations. Before she goes, she joins us to reflect on the efforts she has spearheaded to fight racism, racial inequalities, and poverty for women and children in Rochester.
